Bins, rubbish and recycling

Service Update: Waste and recycling collections

With our partner Ubico, we’re doing everything we can to make sure we collect your waste and recycling throughout the pandemic.
However some crew members can’t go out on collection rounds due to illness or Covid isolation, and there is a national shortage of temporary HGV drivers.
That means we’re under more pressure than usual but we’re always looking for solutions.
Please bear with us and if we have missed your refuse, recycling, food waste, or garden waste collection, we will try and return as soon as we can.
For the latest updates and specific details, please refer to our missed collection page.
Thank you for your patience, and respect for our crews.
